F205 Donut Loadcell

Geometry: Axial strain cylinder in a sealed case, with raised end load bearing faces and hole right through. For use in compression or in fail-safe tensile applications.

The F205 is ideally suited to engineering force measurements including through centre safety testing of cables, rods and bolts.

It is designed for easy installation, usually between two flat faces bearing on its loading rings, either unattached or with retaining spigots positioned in the centre hole. Alternatively tensile load transfer can be achieved via a tie rod assembly through the centre hole. In this way the loadcell can indirectly measure tensile loads in a "fail-safe" mode.

We are happy to design variants of this loadcell to meet your specific requirements. Versions can be manufactured for operation up to +250°C. Please consult our engineering department.

Details of our other loadcell families can be found in the Product Guide.

Notes

  1. AL = Applied load.
  2. RL = Rated load.
  3. Temperature coefficients apply over the compensated range.
  4. The load must be applied directly through the central loading axis.

Connections

The loadcell is fitted with 2 metres of PVC insulated 4 core screened cable type 16-2-4C or a 4 pin Binder 723 series chassis plug.

Excitation + = Red or pin 1, Excitation - = Blue or pin 2, Signal + = Yellow or pin 3, Signal - = Green or pin 4, Screen = Orange.

The screen is not connected to the loadcell body.
